Danny D. Galvez, known to many as “El Jefe” was a household name when it came to custom automotive paint. A legend in his own right, Danny’s paint jobs were to die for and his two-year waitlist was further proof that his art was appreciated and worth the wait. A respected name in both lowriding and the mini truck community, Danny was a master artist who held a serious relationship with color. With intense passion and unavoidable obsession, it’s safe to say Danny set the stage for some legendary work that will forever live.
News of Danny’s passing sent shockwaves throughout the automotive industry, and to pay homage to his life as a world-renowned artist, the Nu Minis mini truck club hosted a fundraiser to celebrate his life. The event, hosted at El Dorado Park, attracted a strong showing of So Cal mini trucks with attendance from various clubs and solo riders.
